This infographic shows the Fukushima disaster timeline, spread of the radioactive cloud and social network activity between the initial explosion on 11th March 2011 and the following 30 days. It’s interesting to watch the relationship between the movement of the cloud and tweets under the effected areas and the countries in its path.

The radioactivity’s monitoring points located within the perimeter of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
This is not a map, but a tool to display the environmental radiation. Although the tool is quite rough, the idea to communicate visually something invisible is very interesting.
Data refer from reading of environmental radioactivity level by prefecture by MEXT. The values are expressed in microSieverts per hour (μSv/h).
